Good story from the NCAA newsletter.

Every recruit and their parents should read that article. I'm so happy that we are where we are this year on the field. But I'm even more proud of the years of dedication to our student athletes. With such a small percentage of college athletes going into the pros and an even smaller percentage sustaining a long career capable of providing a lifetime of wealth this type of care to "students first" is what college is all about
I was aware of Dechico (sp?) and fensing and academic
program while I was at ND . Graduated in 69.
Though formal program started about 64 with Fr Ted and Mike
it seems to me there were ties dating much further back.
My impression was the emphasis on academics AND athlletics
at least dated back to Rockne and Fr ....... president (John W Cavanaugh ? )
and Knute's chemistry mentor Fr Neiuland , creator of
vulcanized rubber, making tires and thus autos functional.
